It feels like I’ve tried a good deal of skincare the past several months some of which were hits where as others were misses! I have to admit many appeared to be misses but there were some gems to be had like the Nip + Fab Soften Kale Fix Moisturizer! I love this stuff! So hydrating and such a great daily moisturizer for us dry skin folks.
Let’s take a look recent Skincare Hits and Misses!
Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Deep Dive Cleansing Gel (Review)
Tarte’s newest cleansing gel is getting plenty of air time after releasing with the Sephora Exclusive Rainforest of the Sea Collection but I personally found it contained a bit too much fragrance to be loved by all. Plus add in the fact my dry skin felt terribly tight after using it and this was a sad little miss! If you’re still gun ho to try it might I suggest indulging in the Make A Splash Hydrating Skin Savers? It’s ten bucks and contains a deluxe size sample of the Deep Dive Cleansing Gel as well as a few other goodies from the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Collection!
Dr. Jart Dermaclear Micro Water (Review)
The micellar water trend has died down a little bit there’s still plenty of formulas well worth trying like Simple’s Micellar Water or even the new Garnier Skinactive Waterproof Micellar Water (It doesn’t do much for face makeup but does a fab job lifting away eye makeup quickly and easily). Now, I’m a fond fan of Dr Jart anything but their micro water just didn’t cut it for me! Why? Because it stung my eyes horribly. This is such a deal breaker for me when it comes to cleansers! This formula does a good job getting makeup off but not at the expensive of burning eyes. Miss!
Pixi Beauty Sleep Cream (Review)
Pixi’s new Beauty Sleep Cream isn’t going to win any favors from sensitive users as it does contain lavender oil and has a strong lavender fragrance but those who don’t mind fragrance might love how refreshingly moisturizing this formula is and how well it retains moisture! This one is a hit!
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Rescue (Review)
If you’re looking for the best eye cream of your life this is it. This creamy, super hydrating eye cream is perfect for dry under eyes! It absorbs easily, wears well under makeup, and leaves eyes looking well rested. Now if they would just do away with the horrible pot packaging I’d be in heaven but none the less I’d buy this over and over and over again regardless of packaging woe!
Lancome Bienfait Multi-Vital Daily Replenishing Oil (Review)
Sure, facial oils are great! Sure, they hydrate skin beautifully! But how many give you visible results right away? Lancome’s formula eases my dullness overnight so my skin is not only smoother and softer but also brighter looking! This one is a big HIT with me!
Soap & Glory When You Wish Upon a Jar of Moisturizer
Typically I like the idea of Soap & Glory’s skincare more than I like the actual formula! But sometimes they surprise, as they did with Wish Upon a Jar! This creamy, hydrating formula leaves my skin feeling soft and supple! Me like!
Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque (Review)
I was really hopeful Kiehl’s new energizing mask would brighten up my skin and re-energize it but sadly, it was a no go for my drier skin! No insta-radiance here, folks!
